Get the How do mug.
An expression taken from an old, old joke that describes a persons failure to grasp the obvious or demonstrate such intellectual ineptitude as to illicit a comment of " How Do It Know?"

The joke refers to a question posed to a scientist by a student ( or in variations IBM executive and employee, Republican and voter..ect...)"Sir in your opinion what is the worlds greatest invention?" asked a student. The scientist replied "The thermos bottle!" "Why?" asked the student, obviously confused. " Well" said the scientist, "it keeps cold drinks cold in the summer and hot drinks hot in the winter." holding up his thermos bottle in awe,"How do it know?"Also see No Shit Sherlock, Duh and George W Bush

Get the How do it know? mug.
Somewhat archaic greeting. Was popular in England in polite society before the 50s.

The phrase is somthing of a non-sequiter - if read as written there's only half a verb, because one usualy does somthing rather than just does. The question could be construed as 'doing' your girlfriend or wife, but the intent is not to open a discussion on sexual acts, but rather to greet.
Jack: How do you do?
Jill: I am well Jack, and yourself?
